More ideas...

Ann sent us some photos of her ATC spinners (she's actually done quite a few of these). Some spinners have random family photos, but others have a specific purpose. When Ann's daughter was going to have a baby, Ann made a spinner with pictures of each of the children but then added blank cards (the cards had paper on them to match the rest of the spinner) for the new baby so her daughter could add new pictures right in with the rest of the family. What a cute idea for a baby gift!
thanks Ann for sending these!



Here's another idea:
For a 50th wedding anniversary, the children of the couple sent out 4 x 6 cards to friends of the parents 2 months ahead of the party. Each friend or relative was asked to write a little something on the card; how and when they had met or why they remained close for so long, even a funny story. They could use both sides of the card since it was to go on the revolving holder. They were asked to send back the finished card with at least one 4 x 6 picture. Then one of the daughters compiled the cards into categories; friends or family and put the picture of the person(s) in a sleeve and hung it after each card. (We would suggest to send along an extra card for mistakes) She said that it was so fun to get the cards back and read what they had wrote about her parents.
Now who wouldn't love to have that gift!

Check back tomorrow...you'll want to see this one.
